Love what you see but the time is not right, or your preferred baby just got snapped up by someone else???
- this will put you on my update list for new litters, announcements and the occasional special sale or price reduction for that "last pup from a litter" that is not mentioned on the website!

He is absolutely delightful. We have bonded great – he loves me and my husband. Is sleeping all night – have him a very nice play pen set up with potty pad, food corner, blanket and toys. Comes to work with me in the day and then hangs with us in the evenings – is very playful then lays in my lap. He is the perfect puppy if I can get him easier to feed. He does not care for pet fresh – bought two kinds last night and he sniffs and moves on. Had to go back to raw to get him to eat. He is at present loose in my office and chewing on everything in site. Love him to pieces already. Using photo is fine. Thanks again.
Hello SabineBentley is a perfect fit for this family. He is the sweetest boy and plays really well with the kids, who love him. Now that my oldest is in school, my middle child loves having him to herself.
July 2012: Bubba is now 7 months old and here is what his daddy says....
... Just wanted to update you about him. When I picked him up we talked about him maybe being large for a mini, at this time, into his seventh month, he is 14.5" tall and weighed in this morning at 12.2#. He is slender and very quick. He does 2.5 miles 5-6 days a week and asks to go every morning. He and Dixie play keep away, tag and tug of war every day, lots of exercise has resulted In a very strong little dog....
As for personality, he is a calm self assured dog. He can get excited but is usually quiet and confident but energetic. My vet has had several therapy dogs of his own and thinks Bubba is a good candidate because of his calm demeanor. As with most poodles he appears to be very intelligent. I ran him through some tasks to evaluate him and he did extremely well.
Hope you're doing well.
July 2012: Koda now lives in FL with Turbo a blue merle poodle, and Kathy and his new human family. Here is a FB excerpt from a recent conversation:
Kathy: He is precious, smart and a clown. Potty training going well, but I am obsessive about taking him out.
Our whole family loves him and my husband adores him.We think he is going to be a great dog, like his brother.They started really playing together today.He loves his toys and finally figured out how to jump on our bed where he stretches out like a rug.
July 2012: Here is a short update on Bosco - the black Merlot x Imp son, from her first litter here with us. Bosco is right at 6 months right now...
Billy Ray just send a new photo of his son Peyton Ray and Sophiee Jean. Those two are sure growing up together and just as cute as ever [wow that rhymes too, LOL]. Thanks for the update Billy Ray!
Read here what Billy Ray said first when they took Sophiee Jean home... She is now about 15 months of age and is also the littermate to Lilah Belle in VA, whose mom just shared a recent update on her as well.
July - I've been meaning to post new pics of Pepper for the longest time - courtesy of Nikki the very busy mom of 3 young ones, a PomaPoo and assorted other critters... Here you all go!
1. of July...
June: formerly Murlgurl on our website - now named Niccolette :o). This is Kandi's merle daughter and she flew via Delta to Salt Lake City in Utah. She has a busy family w. 4 children to call her own now, plus a standard poodle to harass and steal balls from... Here is what George said the morning after she arrived late at night in Utah.
Thank you Sabine, now that it has been a few hours and she has had a good night sleep, she is doing wonderful and she acts as if she has been here for years. She has blended in just fine and is very playful and affectionate with everyone but not hyper, we will be taking her to our vet next week to get her on there books and get her shots recorded etc..
The standard is fine but snapped a couple times when she jumped at his face, he didn't seem to like that but I think that will be go away as he gets familiar with her being in the house. He is very good but has been the only dog for 5 years, other than hat they sit next to each other and eat and drink side by side. And yes we have 4 children and she is busy running back and forth between them all and us, she loves the 3 inch grass in the backyard, she is so beautiful and pleasant. We will send pics over the months as she changes :-)
George in Utah
Hi Sabine, FINALLY got a picture of my boy to send you.
June: Ginger & Garry own our recent cafe merle boy [from Jamaica's litter]. Here is what Garry says about Bailey!
June: Leslie got JoJo back in early April and came back for a second poodle in May :o). You know what they say about poodles, right? Like chocolate chip cookies and potato chips - can't have just one!
Anyways - here are pics of Doogie after his most recent grooming. Great groom job [by Kate] and what a nice boy he is turning into! Thanks for the update Leslie!
Dugair is a platinum silver merle!
Wanted you to know, Iceman traveled home like a champ. He thought about trying to get carsick once we had stopped the car in the driveway and shut it off...lol. He took about 30 minutes and warmed up to everyone, especially Bob, who he is meant for. The rest of the night he snuggled with Bob on the couch, played and was just a loving and happy guy. We will keep you updated on him, but he is a perfect fit so far :)
Thanks again! Tanya
June - Bogie is one of our white older poodle boys that went home in late May. Here is what Robbi says about him, when I did a follow up to see how he settled in:
Late May: Excerpt from a Facebook chat...
Lisa wrote: "He is good! Sweet as ever and starting to settle down some now. I need to update his photos. He is so beautiful Sabine! Oh and he has great teeth! Not like some Poodles. Big bright white healthy ones. Silly and way playful. Oh and lets not forget he LOVES playing in the water. No pups from him coming as of yet. Maybe by the end of the year."
Pat and Joan are a lovely couple up in North Atlanta and we had been talking for quite a while [several months actually] before they fell head over heels for Bosco. Bosco is a black Merlot son.
Late May: Riley flew to MI via Delta andmade himself right at home - pestering the cat and JoJo. Here is what Whitney, his new mom says :o).
I hope you are doing well! Riley (that's what we named our chocolate pup) seems to be adjusting well and we are really happy with him!! He is definitely full of energy and spunk!
I do have a couple questions for you, though. How often should we feed Riley? I think he would eat all day if we let him! lol. My other question is about his biting. I watched one of your videos you put on youtube and I've used what you showed, but my problem lies less with Riley biting my husband and me, which he does.
My concern is that he is biting on our other dog and she doesn't like it. lol. He actually kind of attacks her a bit. I think for the most part he is playing and being a puppy, but I don't want my two dogs to not get along. What can I do or should I do? Am I worrying for no reason? I just want to be one happy family. lol. And sometimes, they seem to fight more than they get along.
I appreciate you being willing to take my questions throughout Riley's adjustment to our home and such! Thanks!! Whitney H.
It was great talking to you! You were so helpful and I appreciate your continued support!
I added you on facebook, as you should know, because you accepted my request. :) I have put up some pictures of Riley on my facebook page already if you want to see them, but I will send some to you, as well. I will also be sure to write on your page as far as feedback goes; it was very helpful for me to read when I was looking at getting Riley.
Again, thanks for everything!
Late May: Bentley is our most recent military brat and now lives with Keith + Tunisha and their children here in GA and having a great rowdy time :o).
Sorry I haven't written sooner... ( Irish) , which we have named Fonzi has been such a blessing for me to have here. He is always happy and playful. He is getting along with Zoey fine.
He has helped me smile when I sob, .... a few days back I lost one of of my female Bostons right after an emergency c-section.... I am devastated....I have a friend who had a mother who just was at the end of weaning her pups and she has accepted them....
I will write you again on a happier note in a week or so, and send some pics as well. I just have been running to my friends house to check on the pups and give the foster mom some yummy cooked chicken and lots of praise to her new found babies....the foster mom is a mini poodle.....
Nicole C. via FaceBook Chat Conversation - late May 2012
Hi Sabine! I was just thinking the other day that we should send you an update. Yesterday was a year having her! I can't believe it!
Lilah Belle is still running the show and is still the pesky little sister at times, but they seems to enjoy their play time and Lilah B is mellowing out. She is adorable and a great cuddle bug but doesn't need to be in-arms or on-lap all the time. She is a character and we believe, part cat! She continues to like to chill out under the couch. It was hysterical because as she was growing, it got harder for her to get under it. She adapted and learned to get under, but it took her longer to figure out how to get back out. For a few days, whenever she would go under there, we would hear this quiet whimpery request for help and we would have to lift the sofa so she could get out. I am pleased to say she has figured out how to get out on her own now.
She is telling us when she needs to go out. And all I have to say is "bedtime" and she goes to her crate. Sometimes she even takes herself to bed without me saying anything! She is doing better at coming when called, but we still need more work there before I am comfortable. Let's just say I would still be nervous if she got out of the house off-leash. We are also still working on curbing her use of teeth in her mouthing. She doesn't use much pressure and responds them I make the sound stop, but I would like for her not to not go there at all.
All-in-all, we just love her like mad! And my partner, who merely conceded to getting a small dog, is now saying that if we need/want to get another dog in the future, she wouldn't mind getting another mini poodle. We just can't get over how darned cute and lovable she is. The photos seldom do her justice.
We continue to be just thrilled with her! Nicole
Late April update after a long drive to get back home...
Chico and Bella on our screened porch. She was a great car rider on the way home. We love her--Thanks Sabine!
April 2012: JoJo is the little silver girl from Kandi's litter and she is now in NC with Leslie + Tom. Leslie + Tom are making some awesome jewelry - she sells on Ets. Click here to look at some of their pieces.
March 2012 - here is what Rusty says about "Bubba IV". Bubba is Cookies black boy with the super coat that went home recently...
Feb 15, 2012 Remington flew to the Canadian border in MI and got picked up from there and brought home... Here is what Ashton says - and she shared snow bunny pics too . Apparently he made quite a bits of a stir at the border crossing too, Ashton says he had about 10 Border Guards admiring him for his colors and cuteness - and we had several hits from Canada on our website since, LOL. Thanks Ashton!
Week 2 of Pepper being in her new home: mid Feb. 2012
Good morning Sabine!
Just wanted to update you on how Pepper is doing. We are definitely making progress with the housetraining, and mostly thanks to the advice you gave me. She now goes on command, and she knows she shouldn't go inside, but she gets confused and doesnt know what to do, running around in circles, LOL and then I have to rush her out. She picks up on stuff really quickly, for example, she is always full of energy in the mornings when I let her out of her crate, and she used to bother the kids a LOT, hanging off of their clothes and stuff, but she has learned that that isn't acceptable behavior, and now in the mornings she runs and gets her bunny and brings it to me or the kids to play tug of war with her.
We are very happy with her, and I can see the beginnings of a really good dog inside of that little fluffy puppy, I think she is going to grow up to be a really wonderful companion. Thank you again for this little happy addtion to our family, and for helping me out after we brought her home.
Have a great weekend!
PS, you can use this, and any pictures of Pepper from facebook for your website if you wish.
Feb 2012 - Nichole - thanks for the compliment! I very much appreciate you saying this! Give huggles from me to all of your 4 kids !!!
Nikki tagged you in a post.

Elizabeth in south FL says:
Here is what Nichole says about hers:
"Its going great! She's taking to crate training a lot better than I had hoped, she just whimpers for a few seconds, then settles down and patiently waits till we're ready to let her out. She seems to be very smart, and it doesnt take long for her to understand that she shouldnt do something, (like jump on my youngest, or chew on toes, or whatever.) Still working on housetraining, she's doing alright, but I really have to stay on top of her or she has an accident. :P Shes settling into the routine very well, she romps and plays all day with the kids, (wearing each other out), and then in the evening when the kids are in bed, she settles down by my feet and lounges while my hubby and I play video games. :)"
Here's what Laurie sends:
Good morning! Hope you are well. Just wanted to share a few photos of Piper. She has settled in perfectly. We are really enjoying her!
January 2012 - Sally send an update via FaceBook...
This pup went home shortly before the Christmas holidays to a family with kids and a full sized doodle. Here is what Megan says - she was initially worried that the pup would be too small to keep up with 2 younger children and a big Goldendoodle.The "bitey" stuff is normal in young poodles [ours anyway - part of the kneehugger legacy] - click here for suggestions in teaching your pup to stop or modify pressure to make it more gentle and loving, as they are really trying to show affection when they do this.
I just wanted to let you know that our black little boy, now Jack, is doing really well. I think he's 85 percent playmate, !5 percent my little cuddle bug. He's growing really nicely, a bit bitey but its probably the pup in him. He and our golden doodle are the best of buds. Thanks so much for your help in helping us find our best fit, the kids love him and everything is working out great. Just a little bit more with the potty training and we've got it made. He wakes every morning at 7 like clock work, so its Jack and Meagan time with a cup of coffee in hand. Couldn't have asked for better.
January 2012 - another unexpected Facebook find - this PekePoo Lady [back then a wee silly pup] sold 6 years ago.
Theresa [her mom] says: "We changed her name to Georgia since I drove to Georgia to get her. (6 years ago) She is super smart and she is the sweetest dog ever! He only fault is she will bark ever time she hears a bell. Watching games shows on TV is impossible. LOL She still has a little brown here and there but is mostly black and starting to turn grey, like her owners. She a true blessing."
Jackson was one of our black spring mini poodle kids this year - his new mom April was visiting in SC and saw him online while vacationing... Here is what she says now that she had him for 4-5 months!!!
Just an update on Jackson.
He is doing great and is a love. Born on April 1st 2011, he is now 13 lbs. and is so funny. He makes us laugh every day. We could not have made a better choice then to buy him from you. Thanks again.
April in VA
Hi Sabine! Funny you should look on my FB page, because I was planning to email you. Lilah got groomed this weekend and I posted a new picture of her. But I realized this week that she is looking like an adult now, not a puppy. She is adorable as all get out still. But it was that moment when I realized that my little Lilah is growing up! She will be 8 months old in a few days. Hard to believe!
Anyway, she definitely still has a mischievous streak, and she and Elway have taken to quarrelling over the toys. It doesn't matter what toy, if one has it, the other wants it. Even if I bring out another of the exact same toy - not good enough! Elway always ends up giving in. She is a good girl. It is entertaining when Lilah isn't using her sonic bark to try to "convince" Elway. But I love her dearly. And everywhere I take her, people think she is adorable.
We are in a training class now, so I am hoping that we can master the elusive "Come" and "Down" commands. I have not been able to teach her that on my own.
I hope all else is good with you!

Jack is a cream PomaPoo boy and now lives with Clae Mathis and his wife in middle GA, after he returned from his first trip to Canada playing for the Fat Cats. Here is what Clae has to say about Jack:
Hey Mrs. Sabine,
Sorry it has taken so long. Our little puppy is doing great. We named him Jack, and he has been a blessing. He is very playful and he loves to be around us. He has gotten a lot better with his training. He never pees anywhere besides his paper, his only accidents are when he goes number 2 in a corner somewhere in the house if he is playing for long periods of time. I actually was going to let you know that we are going to try to save up to get him a companion. If you could keep us updated on any other little boys that you may have in litters in the future because he is so happy and playful that we figured if he has a friend he would be even happier even when we are not home. You sure must do a good job with your puppies because after that one day where he was apparently just nervous, he has been the perfect puppy. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you. Clae

Lucy is that perky gorgeous blue merle PomaPoo girlie you have seen back in June on our website. She is now in Florida along with Ashley and her family. Also look for another update from Ashley in the Testimonial section. Here is what Ashley shared with us...
Just wanted to send you a picture and update on Lucy. She is doing wonderful and has won the hearts of everyone in my family. It is hard to want to carry her around all the time. She was a little shocked by our 18lb cat but has her quite time out moments to get away from everything. She is very very smart and whines only to tell me when she has to potty. We still have small accidents at night but she is doing great for 8wks old. As you can see in the picture my daughter Amelia.loves her... She wants her to hold her on car rides and Lucy sleeps next to her. Thank you do much for adding to my family. We will keep you updated on sweet Lucy.
Thanks again, Ashley

Sophiee Jean is the littlest pup from Briggie's recent litter --- and I had been extremely impressed with her new parents approach to finding not only the right breed for them, but also to find a pup that fits into the family dynamics.
Billy Ray & Angel both were very adament that this pup would become a full family member and they did their homework - from researching breeds [first time dog owners if I remember correctly], and learning about turning a fluffy pup into a valued family member, prepping to have the right supplies and set ups for when the pup would come home, to preparing a special potty area to facilitate successful and effortless potty training [not that potty training is ever effortless, LOL]. I'm hoping I can talk him into taking some pics of the potty area he prepared for Sophiee, in order to give all new puppy parents some additional ideas... Even after the pup went home we continued talking to make sure all went well. I just got the nicest Testimonial Letter from Billy Ray & Family and I wanted to share it in its entirety.
I wanted to give you an update on Sophiee Jean. She is doing GREAT… It has only been 2 weeks since we picked her up and she is about 90% housebroken, ruler of the house and is living up to her personality (spicy and spunky). She is a hoot and makes us laugh so much. She and Peyton Ray are BEST FRIENDS. Every morning he wakes up and asks where my best friend is and once Sophiee Jean hears his voice she comes running into the bedroom looking for him. When Sophiee Jean is asleep in her bed, Peyton Ray will go over and kiss her on her head and say I love you…
To whoever is considering buy a poodle, I would say get it from Sabine.
Here is my story… Our son wanted a dog and I thought we weren’t ready for a pet but he has been asking for a dog for about 6 months every day. So he was turning 3 years old this year and I thought lets look and see about getting him a dog. I started praying to God, please show us the right type of dog and where to get it from and still at this point I don’t know what kind of dog. I started talking to everyone about getting a puppy all I knew was we wanted a small, non – shedding, good with children and a good family dog. Everyone said get a miniature poodle. So over the next couple of months I looked on the internet and searched for miniature poodles and looked at 100’s of web pages and came across GreeneGarden Poodles. I completed the Puppy Inquiry and Sabine contacted me. We talked for 30 minutes the first time because I had 1000’s of questions about a poodle and Sabine answered every question that I had and plus some. We talked more and more over the next few weeks and she was ALWAYS there for us. She is very knowledgeable about her poodles. I felt very comfortable with Sabine so I knew my prayers were answered. .We picked Sophiee Jean from pictures from available puppies by the personality and weight that Sabine gave her (spicy and spunky and under 10lbs). We met and picked Sophiee Jean up and have been enjoying her every since. EVERYTHING Sabine told us about Sophiee Jean has been 100 % correct. Sabine’s help has not stopped since we got Sophiee Jean. Sabine has continued to be there for us and still answering our questions. When we are ready for another puppy (our 15 year old daughter is asking for her own) I KNOW where we will be getting it from.
Sabine, thank you for everything and thank you for a WONDERFUL puppy that has made our family complete.
Billy Ray, Angel, Emily and Peyton Ray from South Carolina.
Josie is a blue merle poodle gal out of Emmarie's and Keanu's last litter.

Subject: Thank you
It was great meeting you today!...and little......Jack:) Seriously, my son and Jack hit it off immediately. My sons face hasn't lite up like that in a while. Alex and Jack are both laid back and calm. Ashley and April are both very interactive and active. So, that in itself made my day! Since Alex seemed to have such a nice bond going with our new pup, I asked him if he had a name he preferred. He said the only name he will like is Jack:) So, Jack it is...sounds nice to say.
I introduced the dogs off our property then gradually lead them to the back gate. April was submissive until she was in her own back yard, then she was very playful. I only had to intervene when Jack's ear was being pulled on:) Jack does well holding his ground even if he doesn't want to play, but he did have unexpected spurts of "play" in him. Jack allowed me to brush all the outdoors off of him without ever mouthing my hand or the brush. Later, they were retreated back to their side by side crates for some rest...mostly for Jack. First, I spent some one on one time with him. He is amazingly laid back. He ate a little. I will let him eat before April is allowed to come around to make sure he isn't too distracted.
I really appreciated you taking the time to talk with me and answer my questions and offering to mentor me when needed. Also, my daughter found out that Jack can sit:) Do he know anything else? By any chance did he have any potty training experience...right now I am watching him like a hawk, not to hard since he is willing to stay in my lap a bit.
Hope you had a nice ride home. Adriane
And a short excerpt from a follow up email dated: 3/15/11
...April really likes Jack. I can tell she likes having a companion. So far, Jack never submits. April may knock him over from time to time but he gets right back up. He is something else, that's for sure...Mr. Calm and Collected:) I adore both of them and think it is so sweet that I get to watch them grow up together...
I brought Jack over to hang out with me at my friends house last night since her husband was out of town on business. I thought Jack was just the right company that evening. He laid next to her most of the night. He sure is friendly. She had wanted a future puppy just like April, now, she says she has been spoiled by Jack and would like one with his temperament. She has two cats that were not phased by him. He gives off such a calm. My cat will patti-wack April just for good measure. Jack can sniff her nose and walk away with out even a warning sound.
I sent along some photos of Jack's first day with us. You can see April in a couple...always after Jack and Jack is always following one of us:) My husband loves Jack's long hair and begged me not to trim him. Do you do a special cut for the summer?
Hope your day has been going well!
